                                PREFACE

This quarterly report reviews Agency progress in meeting its priority
program commitments.  The report is a major component of the Agency
Strategic Planning and Management System (SPMS).  SPMS provides a
process for the Agency to identify national goals and priorities,
issue timely guidance to the field, identify measures of success and
track progress against them.  Each quarter the Office of Management
Systems and Evaluation publishes the report using information provided
by Headquarters, regional offices and state agencies.  The Office of
Compliance Analysis and Program Operations is responsible for the
enforcement sections of this report.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance and cooperation of the many
people throughout the environmental protection management network who
have made timely production of this report possible.

                       FOURTH QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

o  IN FY 1986 THE NUMBER OF PRIMARY NONATTAINMENT  AREAS  DROPPED FROM
   698 TO 685.

O  TEN NEW I/M PROGRAMS INITIATED OPERATION  IN  FY  1986 ALONG  WITH TWELVE
   NEW ANTI-TAMPERING PROGRAMS.

O  FOR THE YEAR, THE REGIONS PROCESSED 99% OF THEIR  SIP  ACTIONS ON TIME
   WHILE THE LOW RATES IN HQ PROCESSING WERE IMPROVED  IN THE  FOURTH QUARTER.

O  STATES EXCEEDED THE TARGETS FOR CORRECTING THEIR  PROGRAM DEFICIENCIES
   BUT THEIR PERFORMANCE FOR NAMS/SLAM REPORTING FELL  WELL  BELOW FY 1985
   RATES.

O  63 AIR TOXICS MULTI-YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLANS WERE SUBMITTED  BY LOCALS,
   STATES AND REGIONS.

O  SUBSTANTIAL REPORTING PROBLEMS CONTINUED  TO  EXIST WITH THE FY 1986 SPMS
   AIR MEASURES.

O  THE REGIONS COLLECTIVELY EXCEEDED THEIR END-OF-YEAR TARGET FOR ADDRESSING
   SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS.

-------
                  NUMBER OF NONATTAINMENT AREAS
THE NUMBER OF NONATTAINMENT AREAS DECREASED SLIGHTLY DURING THE
YEAR.  AT THE CLOSE OF FY 1986, REGIONS ARE REPORTING  677  PRIMARY
AREAS AND 208 SECONDARY AREAS IN NONATTAINMENT.  THIS  IS A DECREASE
OF 18 PRIMARY AND AN INCREASE OF 5 SECONDARY AREAS  DURING  FY1986.
THE NET CHANGE OF 13 AREAS RESULTS FROM REFINEMENTS TO THE DATA
BASE AND SOME REDESIGNATIONS DURING THE YEAR.

-  THE TOTAL NUMBER OF NONATTAINMENT AREAS  (885) IS A  REDUCTION  OF
   ABOUT 160 AREAS FROM THE FEBRUARY 1983 TOTAL OF  1,047.
-  THERE ARE CURRENTLY 538 U.S. COUNTIES DESIGNATED WHOLLY OR  PARTIALLY
   IN NONATTAINMENT FOR AT LEAST ONE POLLUTANT.
-  THE END OF YEAR TOTALS BY POLLUTANT, ARE:   FOR PRIMARY; OZONE (353),
   CO (139), TSP (130), S02 (51) AND NOX (4).  FOR  SECONDARY:  TSP
   (195), S02 (13).

THE REGIONS ESTIMATE THAT 149 OF THE PRIMARY AREAS  HAVE ATTAINED AND
NEED REDESIGNATION.

-  THERE ARE 77 REDESIGNATION REQUESTS IN THE  PIPELINE.
-  78 OF THE 149 AREAS ARE FOR OZONE.
-  REGIONS ALSO ESTIMATE THAT 22 SECONDARY  NONATTAINMENT AREAS HAVE
   ATTAINED.
-  THE REGIONS ARE NOT ABLE TO PROJECT ATTAINMENT DATES FOR  506  OF
   THE 885 AREAS.

               ACTIONS  BEING TAKEN IN NONATTAINMENT  AREAS


THE REGIONS AND OAR  HAVE UPDATED THE ANALYSIS ON  THE CURRENT STATUS OF
NONATTAINMENT AREAS.   THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES OUTLINE THE STATUS:

o  231 AREAS  (25%) ARE  FY1987 EXTENSION AREAS FOR O3 AND CO.  THESE
   AREAS ARE  IMPLEMENTING PLANS TOWARDS THE 12/31/87 ATTAINMENT DEADLINE.

O  180 AREAS  (21%) ARE  COVERED IN THE LIST OF "SIP call" AREAS OR ARE
   AREAS WITH OUTSTANDING SIP CONDITIONS.

O  135 (16%)  ARE  AREAS  WHERE REDESIGNATION TO ATTAINMENT HAS BEEN
   REQUESTED  (72)  OR WHERE ATTAINMENT HAS BEEN REACHED AND THE REGIONS
   EXPECT A REQUEST  FOR REDESIGNATION (63).

o  141 (15%)  ARE  PARTICULATE AREAS THAT HAVE BEEN ESSENTIALLY "ON HOLD"
   AWAITING PROMULGATION OF PM10.

o  73 (8%) ARE AREAS WHERE THE SIP IS FULLY APPROVED.

o  71 AREAS (8%)  FALL UNDER THE DEFINITION OF RURAL  OZONE GENERALLY
   MEANING THAT THEIR STATUS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE UNTIL UPWIND (URBAN)
   AREAS CONTROL  EMISSIONS.

o  14 (2%) AREAS  (13 OZONE) ARE NOT ATTAINING THE STANDARD BUT THEIR
   LEVELS ARE BELOW  THE "CUT POINT" FOR REQUESTING A REVISED SIP.

o  13 (1%) ARE AREAS SUBJECT TO ANALYSIS UNDER THE REVISED STACK HEIGHT
   RULES.

o  THE REMAINING  AREAS  (ABOUT 27) ARE UNCLASSIFIED WITHIN THE ABOVE
   BREAKOUT.

THE LARGEST CHANGES  OF  STATUS DURING THE YEAR WERE AN INCREASE OF 25
AREAS ON HOLD FOR PM10  AND A DECREASE OF 9 AREAS  WHERE THE SIP IS FULLY
APPROVED.

                               SIP ACTIVITY


DEFICIENT SIPs

O  OAR REPORTS 254  DEFICIENT SIPs (COMPARED TO 218 IN THE  SECOND QUARTER
   AND 229 IN THE THIRD QUARTER).

   -  REGION V HAS  114  (45%) OF THE DEFICIENT SIPs WHILE REGIONS I AND
      X HAVE ONLY 1  EACH.
   -  THE 254 DEFICIENT SIPS ARE FOR THE FOLLOWING POLLUTANTS:   OZONE (85),
      TSP (67), CO  (41),  NSR (30), SO2 (20), Pb  (7) AND NOX  (4).
      (OAR WILL TRACK  EPA ACTIONS TO IMPROVE THESE SIPs IN FY 1987)


NUMBER OF SIP CALL  REVISIONS DUE FROM STATES

O  DURING FY 1986,  49  SIP REVISIONS WERE DUE FROM THE STATES  OF WHICH
   40 WERE RECEIVED (82%).

   -  REGIONS I, III,  IV,  VII, VIII, X RECEIVED  ALL THE REVISIONS THAT
      WERE DUE.
      (THESE REGIONS,  HOWEVER WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR ONLY 13 OF THE 49
      REVISIONS).
   -  REGIONS WITH  STATES FALLING SHORT OF THEIR TARGETS WERE REGION II
      (5 OF 8), REGION  V (15 OF 17), REGION VI (6 OF 7) AND REGION IX
      (1 OF 4).


STACK HEIGHT PLANS

O  OAR REPORTS THAT ALL REGIONS EXCEPT REGIONS III, VIII AND  IX HAVE
   SUBMITTED THE REQUIRED STACK HEIGHT PLANS.

O  OAR CONTINUES NOT TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON THE STATE SCHEDULES
   CONTAINED IN THE PLANS AND WHETHER THE SCHEDULES APE BEING MET.  THAT
   INFORMATION WAS  TO  HAVE BEEN THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF SPMS  THIS  YEAR.

-------
             PERCENT  OF  SIP ACTIONS PROCESSED ON  TIME  (HQ)


O  HO WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR 133 SIP ACTIONS IN THE  FOURTH QUARTER.  THE
   TOTAL INCLUDES  47  NEWLY DUE ACTIONS AND 86 DUE FROM THE  PREVIOUS
   QUARTER(S).

O  PROCESSING RATES FOR  NEWLY DUE ACTIONS (EXCLUDING ACTIONS "ON HOLD"
   AND THOSE RETURNED TO THE REGIONS) WAS 70% AND FOR  CARRYOVER ACTIONS
   WAS 63%.  BOTH  TOTALS WERE IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE  SECOND  AND THIRD
   QUARTER RATES.

o  OF THE 133 ACTIONS IN THE SYSTEM DURING THE QUARTER, 64  (48%) WERE
   PUBLISHED.   FOR ACTIONS NOT PUBLISHED, THE STATUS WAS:   33 WERE
   RETURNED TO  THE REGIONS (UP 20), 33 ARE OVERDUE (DOWN 41) AND 3 ARE
   ON POLICY HOLD  (DOWN  17).

o  OVERALL, THE NUMBER OF UNPROCESSED SIPS HAS DECREASED TO 69 COMPARED
   TO 71 A YEAR AGO AND  108 IN THE LAST OUARTER.

   -  OAR HAS CONCERNS THAT THE BACKLOG PROGRESS  MAY NOT CONTINUE NEXT
      OUARTER.

o  THE 3 SIPS REMAINING  IN THE "ON HOLD" CATEGORY ARE  DUE TO THE NRDC SUIT/
   DUAL DEFINITION.   TWENTY SIPS RELATING TO VOC  COMPLIANCE SCHEDULES
   WERE MOVED FROM THE "ON HOLD" CATEGORY DURING  THE FOURTH QUARTER.

                                AIR TOXICS

o  OAR WAS RESPONSIBLE  IN FY 1986 TO REPORT THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION-

   1.  THE ALLOCATION OF  FY 1986 GRANT FUNDS TO EACH  STATE AND APPROPRIATE
       LOCAL AGENCIES.
   2.  SHORT SUMMARY OF THE INVOLVEMENT OF STATE AND  LOCAL AIR AGENCIES
       IN THE CEPP  PROGRAM, INCLUDING ESTIMATED RESOURCES EXPENDED.
   3.  SUMMARY OF INDIVIDUAL STATE GRANT AGREEMENTS THAT INCLUDES BRIEF
       DESCRIPTION  OF THE MULTI-YEAR PROGRAM AND ESTIMATED SECTION 105
       GRANT FUNDS  AND  STATE FUNDS.

O  OAR IS STILL COLLECTING REGIONAL INFORMATION ON THE  ITEMS ABOVE.
   OAR WILL SUBMIT  THE  INFORMATION AFTER ALL REGIONS  HAVE REPORTED AND
   A NATIONAL PICTURE CAN BE DETERMINED.  OAR DID SUBMIT INFORMATION ON
   THE MYDP's WHICH HAVE  BEEN PREPARED BY THE STATE AND LOCAL AGENCIES
   (IN SEVERAL INSTANCES  BY THE REGIONS).

         AIR TOXICS  MULTI-YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLANS  (MYDP's)
AS OF OCTOBER 23,  1986  OAR HAD RECEIVED 63 PLANS  FROM  THE REGIONS
(48 STATE AND 15 LOCAL).   THE MISSING STATES ARE  FLORIDA AND GEORGIA.
PLANS FOR HAWAII AND  NEW  MEXICO WERE DEVELOPED BY THE  REGION AND
ARE CONTINGENT UPON FURTHER NEGOTIATION WITH THOSE  STATES.

-  OAR AND THE REGIONS  ARE EVALUATING THE MILESTONES IN  THE PLANS
   FOR THEIR ADEQUACY AND DETERMINATION OF THE REVISIONS/ADDITIONS
   THAT MAY BE NECESSARY  IN FY 1987.
-  OAR HAS A SUMMARY  OF THEIR REVIEW:

   THE MAJOR EMPHASIS OF  MOST PLANS IS ON EMISSIONS INVENTORY FOR
   ASSESSMENT OF HIGH RISK POINT SOURCES.  THIS IS  NATURAL IN THE
   DEVELOPMENT OF  AN  AIR  TOXICS PROGRAM.  MANY STATES  ARE LOOKING AT
   MODIFYING THEIR PERMIT SYSTEMS TO REVIEW TOXICS  FACTORS AS PART
   OF THE CRITERIA POLLUTANT REVIEW, HOWEVER THIS PROCESS IS NOT BEING
   FULLY IMPLEMENTED  IN ALL PROGRAMS.  THOSR AGENCIES  WHICH ARE
   ADDRESSING PERMITTING  ARE ABOUT EVENLY SPLIT BETWEEN  (1) THOSE
   DEVELOPING A FORMAL  POLICY/REGULATION BEFORE ENACTING PROCEDURES
   AND (2) DOING TOXIC  REVIEW WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY  DEVELOPING A
   FORMAL POLICY/REGULATION.  IN THE AREA OF URBAN  ASSESSMENT, MANY
   AGENCIES IN THE WEST DO NOT HAVE LARGE POPULATION CENTERS AND
   ARE CONCENTRATING  EFFORTS ON NONTRADITIONAL SOURCES (WOODSMOKE).
   MOST ACTIVITY ON URBAN ASSESSMENT IS PLANNING  OF MONITORING
   (SOMETIMES USING THE VOC NETWORK) AND MORE SPECIFIC EMISSIONS
   INVENTORY WORK  FOR AREA SOURCES OF TOXIC COMPOUNDS.   THE AMOUNT
   OF EMPHASIS ON  TECHNICAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT VARIES GREATLY AND IS
   USUALLY PROPORTIONAL TO THE SIZE OF THE AGENCY.

                     DELEGATION OF NSPS AND NESHAPS


o  NATIONAL DELEGATION RATES FOR NSPS AND NESHAPS  REMAINED  ABOUT THE
   SAME AS IN FY 1985.

O  REGION VII (DUE TO NEW KANSAS DELEGATIONS)  SHOWED  IMPROVEMENT IN
   NSPS FROM 73% TO 91%.  OTHER REGIONS GENERALLY  HAD ABOUT THE SAME
   PERFORMANCE STATUS AS LAST YEAR.  THREE REGIONS REPORTED NO CHANGE
   IN THE NUMBER OF APPLICABLE OR DELEGATED STANDARDS (II,  VIII, X).

o  REGIONS V, VI, IX CONTINUE TO REPORT THAT  ALL APPLICABLE STANDARDS
   ARE DELEGATED.

O  REGION VII AND II CONTINUE TO REPORT NESHAP RATES  (71% & 74%) WHICH
   ARE SIGNIFICANTLY BEHIND OTHER REGIONS.

   -  STATES WITH NOTABLY LOW RATES  ARE KANSAS (0  FOR 11 NESHAPS), THE
      VIRGIN ISLANDS  (41% AND 50%),  TENNESSEE (NSPS-57%) AND WYOMING (0
      of 5 FOR NESHAPS).  DELAWARE WHICH  HAD  A NSPS  RATE OF 73% LAST
      YEAR HAS RAISED  ITS RATE TO 96%.

                 TIMELY REPORTING OF NAMS DATA  (GRAPH)

O  NATIONALLY, REPORTING RATES IN FY 1986 WERE  BELOW THE  RATES  ACHIEVED
   LAST YEAR.  RATES FOR INTEGRATED SAMPLERS AND  CONTINUOUS  ANALYZERS
   WERE DOWN SLIGHTLY WHILE PRECISION AND ACCURACY  REPORTING DROPPED
   SUBSTANTIALLY (ABOUT 20%).  THIS MEASURE WILL  NOT BE TRACKED IN
   SPMS IN FY 1987.

O  REGION I WAS THE ONLY STRONG PERFORMER IN THE  FOURTH QUARTER WITH
   RATES OVER 90% FOR ALL THREE CATEGORIES.


                  PMto MONITORING NETWORK DEVELOPMENT

o  OAR TRACKED EFFORTS TO OPERATIONALIZE PM   MONITORS  IN FY 1986.
   -  92% OF THE 662 EPA SUPPLIED SAMPLERS  (612)  ARE  IN OPERATION.
   -  A TOTAL OF 872 PMi  MONITORS ARE NOW  IN  OPERATION.
                  REPLACEMENT OF CO AND OZONE  MONITORS

O  THE REGIONS COMMITTED IN  FY  1986 TO HAVE  STATES  REPLACE 118 CO
   MONITORS AND 134 OZONE ANLAYZERS.

o  NATIONALLY 89  (75%) OF THE TARGETED CO  MONITORS  AND  105 (78%)
   OF THE TARGETED OZONE MONITORS WERE REPLACED.

   -  FIVE REGIONS  (II, III, V, VII AND X) MET OR EXCEEDED THEIR
      TARGETS .
   -  REGION IX HAD THE LARGEST SHORTFALL  REPLACING ONLY 5 OF 44.
      OAR REPORTS THE SHORTFALL WAS DUE TO DELAYS IN THE GRANT
      FUNDING PROCESS.

o  NATIONALLY. FOR THE 12 MONTHS ENDING MARCH 31,  1986,  THE PROGRAM
   ESSENTIALLY MET OR EXCEEDED END-OF-YEAR COMPLIANCE TARGETS FOR
   MICROBIOLOGICAL AND TURBIDITY MAXIMUM CONTAMINANT LEVELS (MCLs) AND
   MONITORING AND REPORTING (M/R) REQUIREMENTS.

o  OF 59,245 COMMUNITY SYSTEMS 1.1% WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF MICRO-
   BIOLOGICAL MCL'S.   THE NATIONAL GOAL IS TO HAVE LESS THAN 1.5% IN
   PERSISTENT VIOLATION.   OF THE 59,245 SYSTEMS  5.3% WERE PERSISTENT
   VIOLATORS OF  MICROBIOLOGICAL MONITORING AND  REPORTING (M/R) REQUIRE-
   MENTS AGAINST A TARGET OF LESS THAN 6.2%.

o  OF 11,434 COMMUNITY SURFACE SYSTEMS 2.5% WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS
   OF TURBIDITY  MCLs.  THE GOAL IS LESS THAN 4.8%.  OF THE 11,434
   SYSTEMS  10.2% WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF TURBIDITY M/R REQUIREMENTS
   AGAINST  A TARGET OF LESS THAN 9.9%.

O  FOR TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANE REQUIREMENTS, LESS  THAN ONE PERCENT OF
   3,193 SYSTEMS WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF MCLs, AND 3.5 PERCENT
   OF THE 3,190  SYSTEMS WERE PERSISTENT VIOLATORS OF M/R REQUIREMENTS.

o  THE REGIONS CONDUCTED 460 SANITARY SURVEYS AGAINST A TARGET OF 185
   OR 249%  OF TARGET.  THE STATES CONDUCTED  18,900 AGAINST A TARGET OF
   13,307 OR 142% OF TARGET.

                       FOURTH QUARTER HIGHLIGHTS

o  IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT OSWER,  IN FY 1986,  BECOMES THE FIRST AA-SHIP
   TO TOTALLY REPORT STATE DATA  IN REAL TIME.   TO ACCOMMODATE THIS SHIFT,
   THERE IS AN EXTRA MONTH'S DATA  FOR THE RCRA PROGRAMS IN THIS REPORT.

o  THE FIRST HSWA DELEGATION WAS ISSUED TO GEORGIA DURING THE FOURTH
   QUARTER.

O  91% OF THE 1538 LDFs INITIALLY  SCREENED ARE "ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFI-
   CANT".  AT THE END OF FY 1986 98% OF THE FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLANS
   WERE COMPLETE.

o  RCRA PERMITTING NOTICES AND FINAL DETERMINATIONS SHOWED A SUBSTANTIAL
   INCREASE DURING THE FOURTH QUARTER.   MOST OF THE PUBLIC NOTICES AND
   FINAL DETERMINATIONS IN THE RCRA  PERMITTING PROCESS CONTINUE TO BE
   RELATED TO CLOSURE PLANS.

o  THE RCRA ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM  MADE SUBSTANTIAL PROGRESS IN ADDRESSING
   SIGNIFICANT NONCOMPLIANCE AT  LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES.  AS OF SEPTEMBER
   30, 42% HAD RETURNED TO COMPLIANCE AND ONLY 2% OF THE 792 BOY SNCs WERE
   UNADDRESSED.

o  THE REGIONS SIGNED 62 RODs/EDDs IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.  IN FY 1986,
   84 RODs/EDDs WERE SIGNED AT NPL SITES.

O  THE PACE OF SUPERFUND ENFORCEMENT REFERRALS UNDER SECTIONS 106 AND
   107 MORE THAN DOUBLED DURING  THE  FOURTH QUARTER.

o  IN FY 1986, 14 STATES HAVE BEEN AUTHORIZED TO MANAGE THE PRE-HSWA
   PROGRAM.  IN ADDITION,  DURING FOURTH QUARTER GEORGIA BECAME THE  FIRST
   STATE TO RECEIVE HSWA AUTHORIZATION.

o  FIFTEEN STATES AND TERRITORIES DO NOT HAVE AUTHORIZATION TO MANAGE
   THE PROGRAM.

                   RCRA FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLANNING


THE HAZARDOUS AND SOLID WASTE  AMENDMENTS OF 1984 REQUIRE EPA AND THE
STATES TO PERMIT ALL ACTIVE  LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES (LDFs) BY NOVEMBER
1988.  IN ADDITION, EPA AND  THE  STATES  MUST REVIEW CLOSURE PLANS AND
CLEAN CLOSURE CERTIFICATIONS FOR ALL LDFs.   THIS MEASURE TRACKS INITIAL
SCREENS AND THE IDENTIFICATION OF ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFICANT LDFs,
WHETHER ACTIVE OR CLOSED.  ONCE  IDENTIFIED AS ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFICANT,
A FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLAN  (FMP) IS  PREPARED TO ENSURE COORDINATION AND
JOINT PLANNING BETWEEN STATE AND REGIONAL PERMITTING, ENFORCEMENT,
SUPERFUND AND OTHER APPROPRIATE  PERSONNEL.   THE FMPs ARE USED TO IDENTIFY
PRIORITIES FOR PERMITTING ACTIVITIES.


o  AT THE BEGINNING OF FY 1986 EPA TARGETED ALL OF THE ESTIMATED 1,456
   LDFs FOR INITIAL SCREENS  TO BE COMPLETED BY JANUARY 31, 1986.  AT
   THE END OF FOURTH QUARTER THE REGIONS REPORT THAT THERE ARE ACTUALLY
   1,559 RCRA REGULATED LDFs WHICH REQUIRE INITIAL SCREENS.  THE
   REGIONS AND STATES HAVE COMPLETED 1,538 INITIAL SCREENS, 106% OF
   THE ORIGINAL TARGET.

o  1,393 LDFs, OR 91% OF THOSE INITIALLY SCREENED, HAVE BEEN DETERMINED
   TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY SIGNIFICANT AND REQUIRED FACILITY MANAGEMENT
   PLANS TO BE COMPLETE BY JULY  31,  1986.  THE REGIONS REPORT 1,365, OR
   98% FACILITY MANAGEMENT PLANS HAVE BEEN PREPARED AS OF SEPTEMBER 30,
   1986.

                    GROUND WATER  MONITORING ACTIONS


THIS MEASURE TRACKS PROGRESS  IN ESTABLISHING GROUND WATER MONITORING
SYSTEMS AT LAND DISPOSAL FACILITIES  (LDFs)  AND SHOWS INTERIM PROGRESS
AT THE 527 LDFs EXPECTED TO REQUIRE  A PERMIT BY NOVEMBER 1988.

o  THE REGIONS AND STATES ACCOMPLISHED 158  GROUND WATER MONITORING
   ACTIONS IN FY 1986, AGAINST A  TARGET OF  114.  109, OR 69%, OF THESE
   ACTIONS WERE TAKEN DURING  THE  FOURTH QUARTER.  MOST REGIONS EXCEEDED
   THEIR TARGETS, WHILE REGIONS I, VII,  AND VIII ACHIEVED LESS THAN 80%
   OF TARGET.

   - 105 LDFs HAVE BEEN DETERMINED TO BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH GROUND WATER
     MONITORING REQUIREMENTS.
   - 31 DETECTION MONITORING  PROGRAMS HAVE  BEEN DEVELOPED.
   - 14 COMPLIANCE MONITORING PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED.
   - 11 CORRECTIVE ACTION PROGRAMS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED.

                   RCRA CORRECTIVE ACTION ACTIVITIES


THE HAZARDOUS AND SOLID WASTE AMENDMENTS REQUIRE THAT EVERY HAZARDOUS
WASTE FACILITY INVESTIGATE AND, IF NECESSARY, TAKE CORRECTIVE ACTION
AT ALL SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT UNITS  (SWMUs) AS A CONDITION FOR RECEIVING
A PERMIT.  THIS MEASURE TRACKS PROGRESS IN  COMPLETING CORRECTIVE ACTION
ACTIVITIES (COMPLETING PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT/SITE INSPECTION, APPROVING
REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION  (RI) PLAN, COMPLETING REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION, AND
APPROVING CORRECTIVE MEASURES).

O  THE REGIONS AND STATES COMPLETED  PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENTS/SITE INSPEC-
   TIONS AT 349 LDFs AND APPROVED 8  REMEDIAL INVESTIGATIONS.  THE COMBINED
   NUMBER OF ACTIONS, 357, IS 141% OF THE 253 TARGET.  ALL REGIONS MET OR
   EXCEEDED THEIR TARGET.  261, OR 73% OF THESE ACTIONS WERE TAKEN DURING
   THE FOURTH QUARTER.

o  107 CORRECTIVE ACTION ACTIVITIES  HAVE BEEN COMPLETED AT STORAGE/
   TREATMENT OR INCINERATION  FACILITIES IN  FY 1986.

FOR FY 1986, SUPERFUND  SPMS  MEASURES PROGRESS TOWARD COMPLETION OF
REMEDIAL ACTION AT NPL  SITES IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER FINANCING IS FROM
THE TRUST FUND OR PRPs.   DUE TO  LACK OF REAUTHORIZATION, TARGETS FOR
REMEDIAL ACTIVITY MEASURES HAVE  NOT BEEN ESTABLISHED.  PROGRESS OF  FUND
FINANCED ACTIVITIES SINCE THE PROGRAM'S START IS NOTED ON THE GRAPH.
NOTED BELOW IS FY 1986  PROGRESS  FOR BOTH PRP AND FUND FINANCED REMEDIAL
ACTIVITY.

o  AT THE END OF FY 1986, 888 SITES ARE PROPOSED FOR OR ON THE NPL.   185
   OF THESE ARE PROPOSED.

O  SINCE THE PROGRAM'S  START, 379 NPL SITES HAVE RECEIVED TRUST FUND
   MONIES TO INITIATE RI/FS.  CUMULATIVELY THROUGH THE FOURTH QUARTER
   51 RI/FS HAVE BEEN INITIATED,  40 OF THESE ARE FIRST RI/FS AT SITES.
   12 OF THE RI/FS ARE  FUND  FINANCED ENFORCEMENT LEAD.

O  183 SITES HAVE HAD RODs/EDDs  SIGNED SINCE THE PROGRAM'S START.   IN
   FY 1986, 73 NPL SITES  HAVE HAD A FIRST ROD/EDO SIGNED.  56, OR 77%,
   OF THESE WERE SIGNED DURING THE FOURTH QUARTER.  IN ADDITION, THE
   REGIONS HAVE .MADE 11 SUBSEQUENT RODs/EDDs AT NPL SITES.

o  33 FUND FINANCED REMEDIAL ACTIONS WERE BEGUN PRIOR TO FY 1986.   IN
   FY 1986, 10 SITES HAVE HAD REMEDIAL ACTION STARTED, ONE DURING THE
   FOURTH QUARTER.

O  PRIOR TO FY 1986, 12 SITES HAD ALL REMEDIAL CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
   COMPLETED.  REMEDIAL ACTION HAS BEEN COMPLETED AT 9 SITES IN FY  1986.
   SIX OF THESE HAVE BEEN FUNDED BY PRPs.

o  14 SITES HAVE BEEN DELETED FROM THE NPL.  THREE DELETIONS HAVE BEEN
   INITIATED IN FY 1986.

                            FY 19R6 HIGHLIGHTS


o  DURING FY  1986,  OPTS NEARLY MET OR EXCEEDED THEIR ANNUAL TARGETS  FOR
   REGISTRATION  STANDARDS, SPECIAL REVIEWS,  DATA CALL-IN ACTIVITIES,
   AND THREE  OUT OF FOUR CATEGORIES OF REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS.
   TARGETS WERE  ALSO EXCEEDED IN THE EXISTING  CHEMICALS PROGRAM.

o  OPTS HAD DIFFICULTY IMPLEMENTING HEALTH  AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
   (33 VS 50) AND MAKING FINAL DECISIONS ON REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS
   FOR AMENDED REGISTRATIONS (3812 VS 4500).

   BACKLOG OF REGISTRATION APPLICATION ACTIONS NEARLY DOUBLED DURING
   FY 1986.

   THE PROGRAM ATTRIBUTES MUCH OF THE ABOVE DIFFICULTIES TO THE UNPLANNED
   INCREASE IN RESOURCES DEVOTED TO REGISTRATION STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT
   ACTIVITIES.

o  A SHORTFALL OCCURRED IN THE NEW CHEMICAL FOLLOW-UP PROGRAM (14 VS 22).

O  THE ASBESTOS  ACTION PROGRAM EXCEEDED ALL ANNUAL EXPECTIONS, CONFIRMING
   ASBESTOS ABATEMENT AT 221 PROJECTS AND REDUCING THE ASBESTOS HAZARD
   AT 413 PRIORITY  #1 PROJECTS (NOT FUNDED  BY  ASHAA).

o  THE REGIONS AND  HEADQUARTERS EXCEEDED TSCA  COMPLIANCE INSPECTION
   TARGETS FOR THE  YEAR.  THE COMPLIANCE RATE  (43%) IS AT THE SAME LEVEL
   AS LAST YEAR.

O  THE REGIONS CLOSED 614 (78%) OF THE CASES ON THE TSCA SNC INVENTORY,
   WHILE 14 CASES ARE STILL PENDING ENFORCEMENT ACTION AT THE END OF
   THE YEAR.

O  THE STATES AND REGIONS ADDRESSED THE MAJORITY OF SIGNIFICANT PESTICIDE
   VIOLATIONS WITHIN TIMEFRAMES DURING THE  YEAR.

                     PESTICIDE REGISTRATION  STANDARDS

o  OPTS MET ITS  TARGET BY ESTABLISHING  25 REGISTRATION STANDARDS DURING
   FY 1986.  THESE  STANDARDS COVER 3,469 PESTICIDE PRODUCTS AND
   APPROXIMATELY 6.4 PERCENT OF PESTICIDES  USED IN THE U.S.

o  SIXTEEN OF THE 25 REGISTRATION STANDARDS (OR 64%) WERE ISSUED DURING
   THE FOURTH QUARTER, COVERING 2,657 PESTICIDE PRODUCTS.

o  DURING FY 1986,  REGISTRATION STANDARDS  (COVERING 45 ACTIVE INGREDIENTS)
   WERE ISSUED FOR:
     THIOPHANATE ETHYL, ORYZALIN, FLUOMETURON,  CHLORDIMEFORM , CAPTAN,
     BENOMYL, PARAQUAT, PRONAMIDE, THIOPHANATE-METHYL, DIOUAT, GLYPHOSATE,
     TRIFLURALIN, ARSENIC ACID, CROMATED &  NON-CROMATED ARSENICALS,
     TELONE, TERBUTRYN, COPPER CHLORIDES,  ETHYL PARATHION, ALDRIN,
     PROPARGITE, PHOSMET, GUTHION, BT (BACILLUS THURINGIENSIS),
     METHYL BROMIDE, FORMALDEHYDE

o  SINCE THE PROGRAM WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1980, OPTS HAS ISSUED REGISTRATION
   STANDARDS COVERING:
       9,300 PESTICIDE PRODUCTS OUT OF  A UNIVERSE OF APPROXIMATELY  45,000.
       41 PERCENT OF THE PESTICIDES USED (BY VOLUME) IN THE UNITED  STATES.
       162 PESTICIDE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS OUT OF A TOTAL OF 578.

o  THIS MEASURE TRACKS  WHETHER THE HEALTH AND SAFETY  REQUIREMENTS (HSR)
   OF A REGISTRATION  STANDARD ISSUED ONE YEAR EARLIER HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED.
   IT FOCUSES ON WHETHER THE REGISTRANTS OF PESTICIDE PRODUCTS CONTAINING
   A REGISTERED ACTIVE  INGREDIENT HAVE:

   -  AGREED TO SUBMIT  ALL HEALTH AND SAFETY STUDIES  REQUIRED BY EPA, AND
   -  SUBMITTED AN  EPA  APPROVED DRAFT LABEL.

o  OPTS'S OBJECTIVE IS  TO INSURE THAT HEALTH AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
   ARE IMPLEMENTED  WITHIN ONE YEAR.
                           I
o  IN FY 1986, OPTS OVERSAW THE IMPLEMENTATION  OF  33  HEALTH AND SAFETY
   REQUIREMENTS AGAINST AN ANNUAL TARGET OF 50, ACHIEVING 66 PERCENT
   OF TARGET.

NEW CHEMICAL NOTICES;

   o  2,222 NEW CHEMICAL NOTICES WERE RECEIVED DURING  FY  1986,  AN  INCREASE
      OF APPROXIMATELY 450 NOTICES OVER THAT RECEIVED  DURING  FY 1985.

   o  DURING FY 1986, OPTS REVIEWED 2,277 NEW CHEMICAL SUBMISSIONS,  OF  WHICH
      1,836 (81%) WERE PRE-MANUFACTURE NOTICES (PMNs),  44 (2%)  WERE  TEST
      MARKET EXEMPTIONS, 194 (8%) WERE POLYMER.EXEMPTIONS,  AND  203  (9%)
      WERE LOW VOLUME EXEMPTIONS.

   o  DURING FY 1986, 2,385 NEW CHEMICAL DECISIONS WERE MADE, OF WHICH  1,960
      (82%) CONCERNED PMNs AND 425 (18%) CONCERNED EXEMPTIONS:

      -  677 NEW CHEMICALS (28%) WERE SUSPENDED,  WITHDRAWN, OR  SUBJECTED
         TO AN EPA ORDER OR OTHER ACTION TO CONTROL POTENTIAL RISK;

      -  88 NEW CHEMICALS (4%) WERE REFERRED TO  FOLLOW-UP;  AND

         1,620 (68%) REQUIRED NO FURTHER ACTION.

NEW CHEMICAL FOLLOW-UP;

   O  DURING FY 1986, OPTS COMPLETED 14 NEW CHEMICAL FOLLOW-UP  ACTIONS,
      ACHIEVING 64% OF TARGET.

      THIS SHORTFALL OCCURRED BECAUSE TWO ACTIONS WERE NOT  COMPLETED: ACRYLATES
      CATEGORY SIGNIFICANT NEW USE RULE (SNUR) AND THE ACRYLATES LISTING
      SNUR (COVERING 8 CHEMICALS).  DATA GAPS AND REGULATORY  ISSUES  SURFACED
      RELEVANT TO THIS CATEGORY;  AS A RESULT, THESE RULES  WERE PLACED  ON HOLD
      WHILE THE PROGRAM DEVELOPS A TESTING STRATEGY FOR THIS CATEGORY.

   O  OF THE 14 NEW CHEMICAL FOLLOW-UP ACTIONS TAKEN DURING FY  1986:

        1 WAS A FINAL SIGNIFICANT NEW USE RULE (SNUR);  AND  13 WERE  PROPOSED
        SNURS.

                     PROCUREMENT SERVICE  STANDARDS
O  DURING THE FOURTH QUARTER, OARM AWARDED  68%  OF  EPA'S MAJOR NEGOTIATED
   CONTRACTS WITHIN THE PROCESSING TIME  TARGETS.

   -  EIGHTY-NINE OF THE 130 NEW COMPETITIVE  CONTRACTS  WERE AWARDED WITHIN
      THE STANDARD SCHEDULE OF  225 TO  240 DAYS  OR  WITHIN A NEGOTIATED
      SCHEDULE.  THREE OF THE 41 LATE  CONTRACTS WERE DELAYED WITHIN OARM.
   -  TWENTY-FOUR OF THE 30 NEW SOLE SOURCE CONTRACTS WERE AWARDED WITHIN
      THE STANDARD SCHEDULE OF  171 DAYS.  NONE  OF  THE 6 LATE CONTRACTS
      WERE HELD UP IN OARM.

O  PROCUREMENT ISSUED 25% FEWER SOLE SOURCE CONTRACTS IN FY 1986 THAN
   IN FY 1985.  OARM EXPECTS THE VOLUME  OF  SOLE SOURCE  CONTRACTS TO
   CONTINUE TO FALL AS EMPHASIS INCREASES ON  COMPETITIVELY AWARDED
   CONTRACTS.

O  EIGHTY-SEVEN PERCENT OF ALL  PURCHASE  ORDERS  WERE AWARDED WITHIN THE
   STANDARDS.

              SECTION  309  ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT REVIEW

O  SECTION 309 MEASURES  SHOW THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EPA IN REDUCING
   POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS WITH OTHER AGENCIES' PROPOSED
   PROJECTS OR ACTIVITIES.
PROJECT ACTIVITY:

o  IN FY 1986,  EPA REVIEWED 268 DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT  STATEMENTS
   AND 1,146 ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS, REGULATIONS AND  LICENSE APPLICATIONS
   EPA IDENTIFIED SUBSTANTIVE PROBLEMS WITH 34%, OR 478  PROJECTS.

O  FY 1986 MARKED A  NEW EMPHASIS ON WORKING TO IDENTIFY  AND RESOLVE
   ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS  WITH NEPA-RELATED ACTIONS BEFORE  EISs AND
   OTHER DOCUMENTS ARE  WRITTEN.  TOWARD THAT END, EPA REGIONS  AND
   HEADQUARTERS MADE 369 SUBSTANTIVE EARLY COORDINATION  ACTIONS WITH
   OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES, AND INITIATED SUBSTANTIVE FOLLOW-UP EFFORTS
   TO DISCUSS  EPA CONCERNS REGARDING 260 PROJECTS.  AS THESE EFFORTS
   CONTINUE, OEA HOPES  TO SEE A DECREASE IN EPA CONCERNS WITH  DRAFT AND
   FINAL PROJECTS.

PROJECT RESOLUTION:

o  IN FY 1986,  EPA's ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS WERE RESOLVED IN 178 OF 274
   (65%) FINAL PROJECTS — EISs, ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS, REGULATIONS
   AND LICENSE  APPLICATIONS — THAT HAD BEEN IDENTIFIED  AS  PROBLEM
   CASES IN THE DRAFT STAGE.

   HELP EPA PROGRAMS  WORKING TO FULFILL VOLUNTARY ElS AND NEPA  FUNCTIONAL




   EQUIVALENCY RESPONSIBILITIES.  OF THOSE REQUESTS,  129 WERE IN REGION III,

o  DURING FY  1986,  EPA  RAISED SIGNIFICANT ISSUES FOR  27%  OF  THE 7,817
                                                                              •

   SECTION 404 PERMIT APPLICATIONS REVIEWED.  FOR THE  PAST TWO YEARS,

   EPA HAS CONSISTENTLY VOICED CONCERN ABOUT 25% TO 30% OF THE PERMIT

   APPLICATIONS REVIEWED.

o  SINCE 1984 THE ARMY  CORPS OF ENGINEERS HAS CONSISTENTLY ACCEPTED

   EPA COMMENTS ON  80%  TO  95% OF THE APPLICATIONS PROCESSED.   OF

   THE 1,594  PENDING APPLICATIONS RESOLVED AFTER WITHDRAWALS IN FY 1986,

   THE CORPS:

   -  ACCEPTED EPA'S RECOMMENDATIONS ON 1,441 (95%) OF PERMITS PROCESSED,
      DENYING 225 PERMITS  AND MODIFYING 1,216, AND

   -  OVERRULED EPA'S RECOMMENDATIONS ON 153  (6%) OF  PERMITS PROCESSED,
      ISSUING PERMITS OVER EPA RECOMMENDATION FOR DENIAL  OR  WITHOUT EPA
      RECOMMENDED MODIFICATIONS.

o  ADVANCE IDENTIFICATION  (AI) IS A NEW PART OF THE STRATEGY TO PROTECT

   WETLANDS.  AI WILL COMPLEMENT EPA'S PERMIT REVIEW  ACTIVITY UNDER

   §404 BY MARKING  SOME AREAS OF REGULATED WATERS AS  SUITABLE OR UNSUITABLE

   FOR DISCHARGE OF DREDGED AND FILL MATERIAL.  SO FAR THIS  YEAR, THE

   REGIONS HAVE INITIATED  13 ADVANCE IDENTIFICATION ACTIONS, AGAINST

   AN END-OF-YEAR TARGET OF TEN ACTIONS.  MOST ACTIONS INITIATED IN FY 1986

   WILL BE COMPLETED IN FY 1987, ALTHOUGH AN UNDETERMINED NUMBER MAY CONTINUE

   INTO FY 1988.
